Kadina Kadoramee Andakadaham tells us the story of a family who’s lost their father in the COVID-19 pandemic. The film starts by telling us about Bachu and his various businesses like the catering business. The first scene of the film is about his biryani pot being confiscated by the Police as he was serving at a wedding that had over 150 guests, which wasn’t allowed during the pandemic.


Every venture the man tried failed miserably and with COVID-19 at its peak, he was in a lot of debt. It was only until he started selling masks to various people on a large scale did he earn a good living. His father always wanted him to come to the Gulf to earn money, where he has been staying for 26 years. Bachu never lost hope and knew that he’ll be able to accomplish his goals one day and when his face mask business flourished, he handed over ten thousand to his mother. The smile she had on her face was incomparable and she told about the incident to her husband with pride.


There’s a scene in the film where Bachu sells his first slot of masks to a pharmacy owner and gets many five hundred rupees notes. He just exited the shop and was sitting on his bike when the Police van came and he was fined rupees five hundred. It was funny because it was his first earnings, and that too he had to pay in fine for not wearing a mask. At this moment I knew that this boy has bad luck.


Bachu’s father died in the Gulf country and his body had to be brought back. The family goes through a lot of things at this time as the health authorities were very strict with rules. As if the emotional toil the death brought wasn’t enough, they had to struggle to get their member back. Through this film, one can understand the pain people might have gone through after losing their loved ones. The families weren’t even allowed to see their members for one last time before getting cremated or buried. For those who died abroad, it was very difficult to get their bodies back and the same happened with Bachu’s father.


The scene in which Bachu’s mother asks him to get her to see her husband for the last time is very emotional. There are many moments in the film which fill your eyes with tears. Kadina Kadoramee Andakadaham is 113 minutes long. It is an emotional tale of a family who is trying everything to get their father back to their homeland. The Malayalam film is an attempt to make people understand the impact the virus had on so many lives. The film has a warmth and the actors can portray it successfully. Basil Joseph as Bachu aka Bashiruddeen has done a great role and so have the other cast members.


Set in the time of lockdown, we also get to see the effect it had on various businesses as many shut down due to the lack of customers and hence went into debt. There were strict rules like wearing masks, social distancing, and quarantine for 15 days. These all have been included in the movie. However, I did notice in multiple scenes that Bachu was not wearing a mask properly (it would only cover his mouth and not his nose), people casually shaking hands, and not following social distancing norms. It was done intentionally as people were seen making these mistakes during the lockdown.


Final Score – [6.5/10]
